Critic Reviews for Kingsman: The Golden Circle
The movie is too long, too violent, too silly-too everything. Yet for those who enjoyed the original Kingsman, it is a more than adequate second act. To put it another way: First time satire, second time farce.
[Matthew] Vaughn hasn't only run out of things to say but people to hate, and without that underlying aggression, the movie feels like it's just going through the motions. Better luck next time, bruv.
If the first played like a simultaneous homage to and parody of Sean Connery's Bond, the second feels like a straight riff on the Roger Moore era: bloated, self-conscious, and smug, with only the occasional flash of nasty wit to put the edge on.
If the first Kingsman was a work of lol-nothing-matters provocation with a real mean streak, the second is a work of lol-nothing-matters laziness...
Audience Reviews for Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle unleashes the blue rash. Running long at 20 minutes past 2 hours, Kingsman: The Golden Circle tells an amusing tale, but fills itself with a bit more nonsense than needed. With that said, the story houses enough entertainment value. The violence is brutal, although the blood is held in check. There is enough action to go around, backed with stylized choreography and camerawork. Taron Egerton puts his foot through the door and takes the lead, something he couldn't do in the previous picture. Mark Strong and Julianne Moore take up a bunch of minutes with plenty of familiar faces showing up. Kingsman: The Golden Circle has the action, the adventure, and the comedy; everything a film of this caliber needs.
Mush up of the first....but with less of the spark. An unnecessary sequel, vaguely amusing in places!
It is irritating how it feels like the producers want to Americanize the franchise and make it more accessible to its American audience, and even though the movie is relatively amusing and has its exciting moments here and there, it lacks focus and doesn't have any structure.
